Audible Editor Reviews

This fun novel places a homeowner, a burglar, and the burglar’s unwitting sister under the same roof. Written in the 1930s by Alice Duer Miller, as a Christmas tale for children, the novel is old fashioned but charming. Geoffrey the homeowner and McVay the burglar conspire to keep Mcvay’s sister, Cecilia, from knowing the truth about how her brother makes a living. Complicating things is the fact that Geoffrey and Cecilia are instantly romantically drawn to each other. Seasoned voice actor Brian Troxell narrates this cute and light-hearted novel. Troxell’s nimble delivery emphasizes the secret and delicate tensions among the trio of characters. Troxell uses a soft conversational tone when sharing dialogue, making listeners feel like flies on the wall as the little drama unfolds.

Publisher's Summary

Geoffrey caught the burglar trying to steal from his home but what happened next surprised everyone.

Geoffrey Holland stood up and for the second time surveyed the restaurant in search of other members of his party, two fingers in the pocket of his waistcoat, as if they had just relinquished his watch. He was tall enough to be conspicuous and well bred enough to be indifferent to the fact, good looking, in a bronzed, blond clean-shaven way, and branded in the popular imagination as a young and active millionaire.
